Two second-half goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino saw Brazil overcome the Mexico challenge in the Round of 16 and progress to the quarter-final, where they will face another title favourites Belgium. Brazil beat Mexico this morning 2-0 in a match that got physical on more than one occasion.
After taking out Germany in a huge opening match win, Mexico took a step back by narrowly defeating South Korea 2-1 in their second match.
As fans around the globe glued to the TV screen in anticipation of who would emerge as the victor, it was a mixed-bag of emotions for all.
Brazil has always been the most successful team in World Cup history, having won five editions of the tournament, one more than both Germany and Italy.
It was Neymar who opened the scoring for Brazil in the 51th minute with a sliding tap-in from Willian's assist, registering his second goal in the World Cup. If the win against Serbia in their last group game makes a point on why Brazil are favourites to win the title, the victory over Mexico on Monday did justice to the fact that Tite's team is the best in the tournament.
Neymar then showed his unselfish side, crossing for Robert Firmino to score in the 88th minute.
Brazil are aiming to emulate the many great teams before them, while putting behind the heartache they suffered at the tournament they hosted four years ago, when Germany destroyed them 7-1 in the semi-finals.
